Jae Crowder suffered a high ankle sprain on Friday, and will likely be out for at least few weeks, Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters Sunday.
Crowder got an MRI on his ankle on Saturday after hurting it during the Celtics’ 102-98 loss to the Houston Rockets on Friday. Crowder appeared to suffer the injury in the third quarter during a transition layup.
“I was on a fast break, and I came down in an awkward way,’’ Crowder said Friday following the game, via ESPN.com. “I got up, and I didn’t feel good. Come to find out I just sprained it.’’
Crowder is averaging 14.4 points and 5.1 rebounds in 31.9 minutes during the 2015-16 season.
